protective styles on fine natural hair

It’s that time again. Cold weather and dry hair are fierce companions. One of the best ways to protect your hair from damage and breakage is protective styling – hiding the ends of your hair away to protect it from the harsh environment.

I’ve done a lot of protective styles over the past couple of years so I figured it would be good to put them all in one place.  Below is a gallery of my protective styles. You can click on each image for a larger view

      No tutorial but now you have wanting to make one! It’s easy though. It’s just a banana clipped bun and then the loose hair is pinned curled. Parted on the side

      Thanks Ali! Some styles I borrow from others. Other styles I try to come up with on my own. It’s a happy mix 🙂
